Editor: I just read the article in the New York Times about five boys given a “punishment” of reading books that will open their minds after vandalizing an historic school house.
First, this is an enlightened idea and I commend the decision. I’m an educator in Hong Kong and this is exactly what the world needs right now.
Second, don’t call it a “punishment.” The boys should be told they are lucky and have an opportunity that not many are given these days.
